The more you tell me about them, the more incompetent they appear. How does IPv6 corrupt routing tables? Also, if you're using a tunnel broker, you're only sending out IPv4 packets that happen to encapsulate IPv6. The ISP won't see a single IPv6 packet that way. 6in4 tunnelling uses IP protocol 41, which adds a 20 byte IPv4 header to an IPv6 packet, so that it can be carried over an IPv4 network to the tunnel broker. The tunnel broker I use, also supports an IPv6 packet in an IPv4 UDP packet, to do the same thing.
